Nell’s grandmother told us to pick her some bleeding heart flowers. We picked them and went back to the porch. She gently pulled apart the two outside petals of the flower to show us what was inside. There were two, small pink bunnies inside!!! Then she removed the two large petals from the front and the back of the the flower and there were two dancing shoes! The parts that stayed in her hand looked like a heart with a line down the middle. When she removed the line, there were two earrings and a drumstick. So many things INSIDE a bleeding heart flower. Brent said it looked like two pink bunnies, two knives, two spoons and a drumstick. I didn’t think so. Brent is always thinking about food.
